Zamboanga airport arrival

We traveled to Zamboanga City last August for a project there. It was my first time in Zamboanga so I made sure to take lots of photos as we went around. Of course, I took a lot of photos of the airport upon arrival and as we departed the city after a quick 3-day stay. Here are photos taken when we arrived at the airport.

The airport terminal has a unique architectural design

There was light rain when we arrived so the tarmac was wet

Airline staff provided an umbrella for each passenger as we walked from the aircraft to the terminal

Greetings in the local dialect, which is a mix of Visayan and Spanish

The baggage claim area greets arriving passengers

View of the terminal exit from the arrival/baggage claim area – the space reminded me of GenSan airport, which has practically the same layout

Pier type tracks

Arriving passengers cross the driveway to meet up with relatives, friends or whoever’s picking them up. Some proceed to get a tricycle to the city.

There are no taxis in Zamboanga and tricycles provide the main mode of public transport for arriving or departing passengers.
